The next step is the further development of the pressure equation (2), so as to include terms of the order a7. Where /9, 7, etc. occur as factors, the expression for y to the third order, as in (5), suffices; but a more accurate value is required in ct2e~22/. Expanding the exponentials and replacing products of cosines by cosines of sums and differences, we find in the first place A B + cos x \ - 4aB -f- + cos3aj-^-2Ğ/3 + 47-?^+i^ 1 O TQ f Trf cos 6Ğ7 + 68 > 25a3/3 15a27 From the terms in cos a? we now eliminate cos x by means of a cos a? = y (1 - fa2) + £a2 + |a2 cos 20 f, thus altering those terras of (12) which are constant, and which contain y and cos 2#.
